Race of Legends biathlon festival to be a charitable event

Money raised from the sale of tickets for the sports festival "Race of legends - the stars of biathlon for peace" will go to charity. Event organizers will direct the earned funds to build the children's hospice in the Minsk region.

Over two dozen biathletes having various titles have already announced their participation in the competition, due in Raubichi on September 12.

By the way, one of the organizers of the festival is three-time Olympic champion, winner of the big crystal globe, the Hero of Belarus, and just a beautiful girl Darya Domracheva. She will be awarded the prize "The Best Athlete of 2014" on behalf of the European Union of Sports Journalists. The latter will be actively covering the race of legends of the Old World right from the sports complex "Raubichi".

Yuri Alberts, senior coach of the Belarus national biathlon:
It is assumed that 20 athletes will participate. They are 10 men and 10 women, who have already confirmed their participation. Basically they are all multiple Olympic champions: Michael Greis, Rico Gross, Sven Fischer, and Simone Hauswald. These are world class stars. All the money raised from ticket sales will go to charity, to build the children's hospice.
